The pack of stamps I bought the other day apparently "don't go" on the size envelopes I have. How strange, I thought all stamps could go on any sized envelopes, as long as you put enough on. Hmm. I shall never understand the complexity of Australia Post.
Though I do pity the poor girl in front of me who found out how much it costs to ship a package to America. You could see her face falling as the man behind the counter quoted her various prices, right down to sea mail. Ouch.
